Starting on Saturday 8th September in Mumbai, the team would be participating in nationwide Barfi! musical concerts that would stretch over the weekend, and beyond.
The entire music team is expected to participate in the concerts that kickstart at the R Mall Mulund in Mumbai and then proceed to Kolkata (9 September), Bangalore (10 Sept) and Delhi (11 Sept).
While the film’s principal cast Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana d’Cruz and director Anurag Basu are expected to join music composer Pritam Chakraborty and his musicians, Priyanka is not expected to sing on stage due to contractual reasons.
However, Ranbir, we are told, would be doing a bit of singing on stage. As he feels his mute and deaf character was unable to sing in the film this is his chance of doing so.
Says a member of the core team, “Ranbir and Ileana are expected to sing with the musicians on stage. The idea is to promote the music. The music was released very late and there was no time for the songs to grow on the audience. This live contact would ensure immediate impact for the music.”
